    1. Ryan Kent
    2. Harry Wilson
    3. Yan Dhanda
    4. Rhian Brewster
    5. Ovie Ejaria

    I've left out TAA and Ben Woodburn as I consider both as part of the first team.

    First two imo. Most likely I'd say is Kent. Wilson seems to be doing everything right but for some reason isn't fancied... this gives me reason to believe klopp and co see some serious issues.

    Toss up between Brewster and Ejaria for me.

    Although if pushed, I'd say Brewster. Breaking through as a central midfielder at a top club is hard unless you're an exceptional, truly godly talent.

    depends on what you mean by breakthrough. most have already had debuts with some part of the squad. its going to be some while before any are on the first team sheet. next one up will be yan dhanda.

    Yes. The Wilson thing is mystifying. He has played brilliantly for the under 23's, but still not getting a look in.

    1. Ryan Kent - Despite being a very good player, his ship has sailed it seems. He could still make it, but doubtful for us.
    2. Harry Wilson - The one I thought would make it. Now I'm not so sure.
    3. Yan Dhanda - I don't see it, but still plenty of time.
    4. Rhian Brewster - Injured, which will impact him for the next year.
    5. Ovie Ejaria - He still hasn't done quite enough.

    As in McManaman, Fowler, Owen, Carragher, Gerrard and Sterling to a point. (that sort of breakthrough)

    I keep. It understanding why it isn't Wilson, personally. But it seems like he's not pushing through or keeps getting injured at the wrong moments for his career to take the next step. He was the best most productive player in our U23s.

    Realistically though, I think it's Ejaria out of that list. He chose a bad time to get injured himself.

    I thought Ryan Kent looked particularly attractive on the ball when we played Tranmere - problem is it's Tranmere.

    but those are once in a generation ain't they, and it was a different time; sterling aside. nearest at minute is trent and he will not be a first team player for at least another year. i think we still have this ideal that all kids should be in the team and starting by 20 and it just doesn't happen (specially in this country/league) as kids that age are still very raw and do not know the game which is why managers keep buying players of 24+, they have the experience required.

    Thought Ben Woodburn was outstanding in both the halves he has played this pre-season so far.

    Will be intresting to see how he progresses next season - bright future for sure.

    TAA impresed also, will be putting Clyne under pressure sooner or later id imagine.
    We won't conquer the world, just the ball, every ******* time.

    Ejaria. I don't get the problem with Wilson not getting his shot.

    he has. next couple of years will be interesting to see what sort of player he's going to turn into.

    Was a contender for man of the match, crisp passing, compossed, good decision making, getting stuck in, few little tricks here and there.

    Damn impressive.

    think he's a canny little player, not much appears to phase him at all. kids got good vision, decent skills and a level head - shots ain't bad either.

    Agree with all this. No knocking the others though.

    Very good question!

    I don't have a clue.

    Hopefully, one of them will breakthrough. My guess Dhanda as he seems to standout in the U18's.

    looks like he might get pushed up into 23's this coming season, certainly one to keep an eye on.

    Considering we lack in the wide area's, I'd say either Kent or Wilson.

    Ejaria may well need to go on loan somewhere as he won't get many minutes behind Lallana, Coutinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Grujic, Can and the possibility of Keith arriving too.

    Brewster and Dhanda are younger and will be fixtures for the U23s and U19s in the CL.

    Don't think any will.

    Kent & Wilson pretty much done here I feel, Dhanda is 19 in December and not even made the first team squad once so he's far away.

    So I'd say Brewster.

    Kent will go on to do well in championship next few years and maybe will follow a similar career path to that of Tom Ince.

    Wilson has been excellent in u23s but hasn't found himself included at all in first team....possibly a move lower down in leagues.

    Good post .Have to agree with these observations. I rate Kent very highly but it looks like he is set for another loan this season. Always thought he had the edge on Wilson but Harry has not had a chance despite scoring 28(8) goals for the U23 last season.Brewster is the youngest of the group and will be on a similar list next season.

    I think they all have the potential to break through as a top player, whether they put the extra miles in and get there will be another matter.

    I rank them by their current talents...

    Kent
    Ejaria
    Brewster
    Wilson
    Dhannda

    1. Ryan Kent
    2. Harry Wilson
    3. Yan Dhanda
    4. Rhian Brewster
    5. Ovie Ejaria

    On the pitch Harry Wilson has been, for me, by far the most impressive - he was almost always a cut above everyone else in the U23s last season, even when he was playing with senior players. But if he can't get into a 24-man squad in pre-season (while Ryan Kent comes straight back in) then you have to assume that Wilson isn't going to get a chance here. When he's played alongside Kent and Ejaria he looked the better player too.

    Kent and Ejaria are both tidy players but there's so much competition for where they want to play (and Ojo is probably better than both) that I don't see them breaking into the team.

    Dhanda and Brewster are a bit younger. Brewster is quick, Dhanda is creative, but I'd have thought both are a long, long way from the first team. They've obviously got the chance to develop but neither stand out for me in the way some of the other players we've seen come through have impressed (Sterling, Ibe, TA-A, etc).

    So my guess is, sadly, that none of these five will be Liverpool regulars in the future. But all five are talented enough to make good careers as professionals.

    But (referring back to my first paragraph) I think Harry Wilson deserves a chance and I thought Ryan McLaughlin was going to be a star, so what the hell do I know?

    Brewster will definitely make it. Kid oozes potential.

    Ejaria might, haven't seen enough of Dhanda, but while I think Wilson and Kent have a lot of ability, I can't see it being at Liverpool. I can see them being really good players at places like Watford and Stoke.

    From what I've seen of Ejaria, he won't make it here. Kent's been impressive so far this pre season and last but I haven't seen much of him apart from that. Doesn't look like he'll make it here though.

    Wilson has looked good but would need to see more.

    The other two I haven't seen a lot of.
